Flash Point by Spiders
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Crusher Records
Over nine songs that rarely exceed three minutes, these female-fronted, Graveyard/Witchcraft-associated Swedes sound equally inspired by the glammier end of NWOBHM (Girl/Marseille/Girlschool) and their homeland's eternal garage-rock revival (think Nomads). Pre-punk Detroit, the Sweet's metal side and (in blooze-to-thrash raincloud "Above the Sky") the Shocking Blue figure in as well. Hand-clappy hooks, revolving riffs, weekend words, even sax breaks -- perfect stuff for hanging out in parking lots and looking tough. Tunes like "Rules of the Game" and "Stendec" are roadsters peeling rubber.
